ISLIP, NEW YORK, DEC. 8 – The Seatuck Environmental Association is pleased to announce the appointment of three distinguished individual Long Islanders to its Board of Directors. The new members, Andrew Mulvey, National Grid’s Government Relations Manager; Carl Hyman, the founder of Alure Home Improvement; and Jim Barry, President of Artisan Mortgage Company, bring a wealth of experience and a shared commitment to environmental stewardship.
Mulvey is a seasoned community advocate with a long history of organizing political action in New York, including but not limited to wildlife preservation and resource conservation. His expertise in the field and strategic vision will undoubtedly contribute to Seatuck’s ongoing efforts to protect and enhance Long Island’s unique ecosystems.
“I am so excited to join Seatuck Environmental Association and have this chance to promote the mission,” said Mulvey. “Across Long Island, Seatuck advocates for wildlife and advances critical conservation projects. Their on-the-ground work is essential to making sure Long Islanders can enjoy beautiful places to live and recreate for generations to come.”
Hyman is an accomplished business professional dedicated to raising environmental awareness and community involvement. In addition to his role at Seatuck, he actively volunteers at several other environmental nonprofits, further demonstrating his commitment to wildlife conservation and sustainability.
“I am elated to serve on the board of Seatuck because it is Long Island-based, benefiting my family, friends, and everyone who lives on our island paradise,” said Hyman. “Seatuck’s mission and initiatives align perfectly with my core values and desire to reverse as much of the damage my generation has done to our environment and its precious wildlife. It is my belief that we need to treat our world as having borrowed it from our children instead of having inherited it from our parents.”
Barry brings valuable leadership and community engagement skills to the Seatuck Board of Directors. With a background in housing finance and a deep-rooted dedication to supporting Long Island communities, his addition to the Board of Directors enhances the organization’s capacity to impact the local environment positively.
He believes the region’s “ever-retreating wilds” are of great concern. “I feel most at home when immersed in Long Island’s natural environment, and the need to safeguard that green space in our communities helps create a healthy balance,” says Barry. “An organization that advocates and works towards this sustainability resonates deeply with me because nature is where we live.”
“I am honored to join Seatuck’s Board of Directors and work alongside a team of individuals dedicated to protecting the unique and diverse ecosystem right here in our backyards,” Barry stated.
Enrico Nardone, Seatuck’s Executive Director, expressed his enthusiasm for the three new appointments saying “we welcome the fresh perspectives that Andrew Mulvey, Carl Hyman, and Jim Barry bring to the organization. With these appointments, Seatuck reaffirms its mission to wildlife conversation and the sustainable use of Long Island’s natural resources.”
